Genesee Country Village & Museum, 1401 Flint Hill Rd., expects to be overrun with vampires during its annual “Spirits of the Past” theatrical tours.

The special evening program, scheduled only Oct. 17 to 20, will be different from a typical visit to the historic village. Costumed guides will lead guests by candlelight on 75-minute walking tours through the darker recesses of the historic village, where they’ll experience spine-tingling twists on historical accounts and spooky folklore, depicted in eight theatrical vignettes.

Because of the intense nature of the tours, infants and children under 10 years of age are not permitted.

New this year, GCV&M is including specialty tours on two evenings. On Oct. 17, there will be a tour for guests with mobility issues requiring extra time to move between buildings. On Oct. 18, there will be an ASL-interpreted tour on the schedule. These tours, as with all Spirits tours, are by reservation only, and are expected to fill quickly.

Along with the tours each evening, the Museum is offering a Spirits Buffet Dinner from 5 to 9 p.m.. The buffet will accept walk-ins, although reservations are encouraged to guarantee preferred seating times. There will also be a cash bar available for those in need of liquid courage.

Tours will begin in the early evening and run until after dark. Advanced reservations are required. For ticket information, times and availability go to the Museum’s website, gcv.org.
